Bread Salad



  1. In a large bowl toss together dried bread pieces, tomato, onion, and basil; set aside.
  2. For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Pour the dressing over the bread mixture; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Place romaine on four salad plates. Spoon bread mixture over romaine. Makes 4 side-dish servings.

From the Test Kitchen


To dry bread, spread bread pieces or cubes in a shallow baking pan. Let stand overnight at room temperature, stirring once or twice. Or preheat oven to 300F. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring once or twice until dry but not toasted.

Quick Bread Salad:

Prepare as above, except omit vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper for the dressing. Substitute 1/4 to 1/3 cup bottled Italian salad dressing and let stand as above.
